If an outbreak hits, availability is as easy as a trip to the gun store, wall mart, or whatever is laying around. Hell, I'd think about stopping at the "Sportsmans Guide" headquarters... Or a Cabellas since it would be free.

I am a big fan of the .223 AR-15. pretty lightweight, rounds would be fairly easy to come by. They would surely be in nearly every police car, military outpost, etc... and anyone could shoot it.

Ar-15 was the most fun I've had shooting yet. No ricochet like my 9mm. It just broke up the bowling ball sized rocks.

And in the right trained hands, the AR-15 is a more then capable rifle for assisting the survival of a Zombie Apocalypse.

We'll just say that my aim was better than the guy who owns it. But I WANT a lot more practice.

SAW's are fun... I am a big fan of a truck mounted M-2 myself but in Arty, we had the M-60 for our perimeter defense weapon then we got the M-249 which is pretty bad ass as well... though not a fan of having to pack either one...

I've got 2 AR's. The .223 round is too small to qualify to me. It's a lot of fun, I've even got 100 rd beta mags. It's as good as a .22 cal can be, but it's still a .22. I love em', don't get me wrong. But they aren't even very good at killing live people (weren't even really designed to actually) let alone something dead already that needs it's head removed. Not happening in one shot, that's for sure. The .223 round was designed without lethality in mind. The idea behind it was that with a smaller round a soldier could carry more ammo and shoot more. The thinking was that if an enemy was hit with a .223 he would be " combat ineffective", but still alive, so then other enemy soldiers would have to help him, rendering them "combat ineffective". They thought this was better than a .30 cal that kills the enemy right away therefore wouldn't need help and the rest would keep fighting. The backfire is that our enemy didn't/doesn't care about their own, and you had to hit your target in a smaller area more than once. Even now soldiers complain that .223 rounds go right through "skinnies" and they keep on going. The military has been looking for ways to improve the .223 for many years, but you can only do so much with a .22. It's too fast and small to expand very much, causing less damage. Take a .30 carbine to a range and compare it to a .223 on a piece of wood and you'll be amazed. Fact. Like I said, I love them. But the same reason they don't work for Deer, they don't Qualify here... Hey, that rhymes... Make that rule #8 maybe. I'm looking to get a .458 SOCOM upper for one of my AR's, this is the Military's newer fix for the low stopping power of the AR. If an AR does work IF all hell breaks loose, great. But don't plan on it.

Correction. Just found out it was a mak 90 ak when i asked if he wanted to sell it. I obviously don't know enough about guns.

These guidelines are based on the following rules established on BS acquired from created stories about fictional events that may or may not actually happen...
The main goal is to remove the brain or separate it from the stem, so we're looking for calibers that are big enough to expand and remove large chunks of material. Like anything else, nothing is perfect for everything. Some will be better for close range, others for distance. So here it goes:
1) Must be over .30 cal.
2) Bonus points for one shot kill possibility (larger caliber usually better)
3) More firepower the better. Blend of fast reloading time and amount of ordinance fired. Example, a more effective round fired slower could trump a faster firing and reloading less effective round. (Garand VS standard AR).
4) More Bad Ass the better. You're probably going to die anyway, don't go down looking like a bitch...
5) Bonus points for uniqueness. Shooting one is boring if you can drop a piano on one... Old school and military, flamethrowers, black powder, rare, custom, combination guns, bayonets,etc..
6) Jeep bumpers should be able to qualify. Bumper should be able to withstand driving through a crowd. Come to think of it, I'd probably have to put my doors back on... That sucks...
Also see rule #4
7) Shotguns must be 16 gauge or larger. Exceptions could be made for 20 gauge converted to full auto, see rule 5.

That's all I got for now, feel free to add recommendations/ opinions.
IMO a suppressed .22 would do well in a zombie apocalypse. Ammo is cheap, light, and abundant; it has enough power to enter the skull but not leave so it will bounce around the skull, destroying the brain; it's super quiet. While you guys draw the zombie mob, they won't notice me picking them off one by one.

A .22 short is what you are referring to, and at very close range. That was made popular by the mafia, and more so by movies. A guy I shoot with has a silenced .22 LR and it is awesome, very quiet. Not going to do much damage, but about the only caliber that can be "silenced".

Yeah I'm thinking of the .22 LR. Like a buddy's bolt action rifle of his. That thing is super quiet. You don't need to do much damage if you turn the brain into a slush!

Hmmm, a silenced .22, a rooftop, zombies on the street. Could be entertaining. Sounds like a scene for a movie that could be funny.

My Ruger 10/22 would be ideal. I put a new stock with a pistol grip and mounted a red dot sight. Very fast target acquisition and the 25 round magazines don't hurt.

I'm tired of looking at front bumpers and have settled on the PSC Rockbrawler. I'm ordering it next paycheck and have a guy lined up to black powdercoat it. Think it would fit rule #6?

I have the same rifle. Iron sights so I need to add a scope, suppressor, and larger than 15rd magazine.

I bought a loader like you have for your glock. Wouldn't say faster but won't have a bleeding thumb from reloading so much.
Wish they made a speed loader like your. 22 has for my 9.

Yeah, I can probably load faster without it, but it definitely saves your fingers.

They make loaders for 9's. Just have to look around. The one I like is more of a thumb saver than a speed loader, but I like it a lot. Just a plastic circle that your thumb goes in with a straight piece of plastic underneath you use to shove the follower down.

The one I bought slides over the clip and will do 45 or offset 9 clips. Not any faster but like I said, no cut fingertips.

You had better be a damned good shot, or have it belt fed, if you're gonna use a .22! Just sayin....

Looks neat. If I was back in fighting shape I wouldn't mind giving it a go. Now that I've done the wife mod, the new house mod, and the work every possible day mod to pay for it.... Maybe we could make one for our Jeeps...
